Excellent Purchase

 

The ASUS Laptop ran perfectly well for quite some time, no problems. Installed an extra 4GB stick easily, bumped it up to 8GB. If you run the machine on HighPerformance and it needs to charge up at the same time, expect some heating issues. Recommend a...

Good until went bad :(

 

I probably got the 1/10000 one with a problem. I'll be sending this back to ASUS when I get the chance. Blue screens and random slow downs leads me to believe it's a HDD problem. I would NOT recommend this product to anyone due to my issues.

It worked well the first month I bought it, but began to degrade after that ; Looks nice, 10-key

It blue-screens every once in a while ; Runs extremely slow randomly and 70% of the time it crashes, often have to hard-reset ; Heats up quick when playing games, so buy a notebook cooler

crashes, stalls, glitches

 

Laptop will freeze up when watching youtube, netflix, movies on the computer or DVD. Don't plan on any online gaming, and the mouse is super sensitive without the option to turn off the tap to click feature. Product will also exit out of a screen and...

Nice and fast

 

Nice and fast, video looks great, doesn't heat up. Would have liked a better webcam. Some things are hard to find, but that may be a matter of getting used to new computer. SO glad it has Windows 7. Overall, I'm quite happy with this computer so far.

Fantastic Laptop

 

This is my first laptop that I purchased for myself. I am an avid gamer and needed something that would at least allow me to play my Steam games. I did upgrade the RAM to 8GB, but have had zero problems. Everything looks great and when I hook it up to...

We have a 'family' of Asus laptops

 

I recently purchased 2 of these for my grandchildren - on their father's recommendation. I also picked up the 17'' version for myself. Last year dad and grandpa both bought this laptop and highly recommend it.

Great budget i7 laptop

 

By its price ($599) at this time, it's great deal and great product with quality. 4G RAM is a weakness, but expandable to 8G is an optional to go when feel performance issue in future. As all tablet configured with only i5 now, this one with i7 and...

Good enough

 

I mainly bought this laptop for gaming and school. As a gaming machine it works fine, nothing amazing, don't expect to be playing Crysis on high on it. But it does play good games like Counter Strike Source and AVA on high graphics. Other games like...
